NHS NES – Supporting Professional Career Development in the NHSRyan Chatham2020-10-20T11:14:06+00:00
The NES Nursing and Midwifery Career-long ePortfolio system allowed practitioners to record evidence of continuing professional development on an electronic platform however this system was not intuitive which meant that many health professionals did not use it and went back to paper-based re-validation.
Bridgeall was engaged by the Digital team at NHS Education for Scotland (NES Digital) to develop a new web application. Working closely with the NES product owners and UX team to refine user stories and develop appealing visual designs, the new system allowed users to generate evidence for re-validation in many formats, e.g. various forms, file uploads and professional details. The resulting application has been enhanced twice and is currently being used by 25,000 users.
Natural Power – A Bat Smart Curtailment System (BSCS)Ryan Chatham2020-11-12T15:31:26+00:00
NP, a leading independent renewable energy consultancy operating globally, required a system for the curtailment of wind turbines when a high risk of bat fatality is present on windfarms. In the US, the current blanket curtailment approach in response to high wind speed minimises bat fatalities (an endangered mammal) but at a significant economic cost to operators even when there are no bats in the area. Estimates suggest that 25% to 75% of curtailment hours may be unnecessary.
Working closely with NP and Elekon AG (a Swiss-based supplier of Batlogger equipment for recording and analysing the location of bats), Bridgeall custom developed the software underpinning a Bat Smart Curtailment System to minimise these economic costs. The system removes the need for blanket curtailment by monitoring bat activity in real-time, curtailing turbines only when relative risk value has reached a certain level.

Heineken – Streamlining Business ProcessesRyan Chatham2021-04-16T10:47:12+00:00
Following a strategic decision to re-develop and standardise on Microsoft technologies, Bridgeall was selected from a competitive tender as one of Heineken UK’s SharePoint .NET and core ASP.NET preferred development partners based on our deep .NET experience, SharePoint know-how, agile development approach and rigorous software engineering discipline.
With the aim of delivering immediate improvements in business processes, the first project was to transition an Out of Hours Support Manager application from a variety of disparate departmental solutions, both Lotus Notes applications and spreadsheets, into a single application that streamlined the process for the business. This initial application would lay much of the framework for standardising subsequent applications. To ensure seamless integration, Bridgeall took a wider and longer-term view, developing a set of re-usable components and design elements that could be easily incorporated across the full programme.
Fair Start Scotland – Supporting Employment in ScotlandRyan Chatham2021-06-02T12:28:52+00:00
Fair Start Scotland (FSS) is Scotland’s employment support service providing assistance to those individuals ‘furthest from getting steady work’.

Late delivery was not an option. The full project lifecycle – strategy, initiation, discovery, procurement, alpha, beta and transition to live service – had to be completed within 14 months; and at a fixed price. Working closely with FSS’s internal project team, and adopting an Agile approach, the Bridgeall software development team delivered on-time and under budget.
Energy Savings Trust – Reducing Scotland’s Carbon FootprintRyan Chatham2021-05-12T12:52:56+00:00
EST is a social enterprise offering impartial advice on reducing the country’s carbon footprint. The Scottish Government asked EST to manage a project to design and build a register for the collection and validation of Energy Performance Certificates (EPC).
Bridgeall’s Microsoft accredited .NET development team designed, developed and deployed the new combined register within six months. An Agile development approach was essential to accommodate multiple third parties and frequent specification changes. The customised software solution developed by Bridgeall plays a key role in the Scottish Government’s drive to reduce the country’s carbon footprint, meeting the challenges of global warming. Circa 200,000 Energy Performance Certificates are generated annually from the new combined register.
